I first blogged about the mini-season I named Sprinter last year. I said it usually arrived, on the years that it does, between my birthday and St. Patrick's day. Well it isn't quite my birthday yet but it's already here. While walking home from work I could smell cedar wood burning - that's always an indicator that Sprinter has arrived. Don't ask me why burning wood smells appear more during late winter than any other time, but that's what happens. It's a fleeting, ephemeral season, so don't wait until Spring is here, get out and enjoy Sprinter.
